Considering the fact that the Harappan script may have been proto-Brahmi, the underlying language to be expected should be Sanskrit, or proto-Sanskrit, or derivatives of Sanskrit. Many of the rules of evolution that apply to scripts are equivalently true for languages too. Like scripts, languages too render themselves to similar evolutionary inspections, as they too carry imprints of their journey down the ages
Topics: a study of the indus script, script, evolution of script, harappa, brahmi, mohenjo daro, harappa

that NAMASMARAN is like water. We realize its importance only if we drink it; not merely if we read and discuss about it! It is also like food. In absence of eating; the discussion on food is futile! In fact; NAMASMARAN is even more important!  It is like oxygen. We realize the value of oxygen only if we breathe it; not by mere discussion.

Around 45 odd signs out of the total number of Harappan signs found make up almost 100 percent of the inscriptions, in some form or other, as said earlier. Out of these 45 signs, around 40 are readily distinguishable. These form an almost exclusive and unique set. The primary signs are seen to have many variants, as in Brahmi. Many of these provide us with quite a vivid picture of their evolution, depending upon the factors of time, place and usefulness. Even minor adjustments in such signs,...

Kripanantha Variar is a well-known and loved devotee of Siva, Ganesa and Murugan. Tirumantiram says, “Siva is the Intelligence that abides as Sivam.” The divine poet says, “The Intelligent have all.” Intellect is deep, expansive and subtle. God is called the Deep, the Expansive and the Subtle. That is what Mani Vasakanar says. Intellect abides in the deep. Having Intellect is having bliss. The surface of the ocean have waves. Below the surface, are the fish. Still further down below the...
